Oil prices fell nearly 4 percent on Tuesday after the government forecast the world economic slowdown would shrink global oil consumption this year for the first time since the early 1980s.

Crude oil in New York trading fell $1.64, or 3.7 percent, to settle at $42.07 a barrel.

The Energy Information Administration said in its monthly energy outlook that it expected global oil demand to fall by 50,000 barrels a day in 2008 and 450,000 barrels a day in 2009 — marking the first time since 1983 that year-to-year world oil demand has dropped.

The lower forecast came as the agency revised its 2009 world growth estimate for gross domestic product to 0.5 percent, down from last month’s estimate of 1.8 percent. The agency estimates 2008 G.D.P. growth will end up at 2.7 percent.

The Energy Non Crisis

Lindsey Williams talks about his first hand knowledge of Alaskan oil reserves larger than any on earth. And he talks about how the oil companies and U.S. government won’t send it through the pipeline for U.S. citizens to use.

On the other hand the world needs a safe and cheap source of energy. The future of the mankind is in Nuclear Synthesis not in the oil. Within the next couples of dacades the oil will become obsolete like the coal.

Stupid Internal Microsoft Vista SP1 Video

Stupid Internal Microsoft Vista SP1 Video where a hired Bruce Springsteen band must sings the praises of Vista’s SP1 release.

This video could be considered funny if it wasn’t ridiculously stupid. And everybody knows that Vista sucks and is far worse than XP.

Time Warner to test Internet billing based on usage

The second largest U.S. cable operator said it will test consumption-based billing with subscribers in Beaumont, Texas later this year as a part of a strategy to help reduce congestion of its network by a minority of consumers who pay the same monthly fee as light users more.
Let’s hope this doesn’t go national with netflix almost daily and w/ video games.
